‘Rydal Water, Westmorland’ by Clarence Henry Roe (1850-1909). Rydal Water is one of the smallest but possibly the most beautiful bodies of water in the Lake District, and the former home of both William Wordsworth and Thomas de Quincey. The painting is signed by the artist and hangs in a superb quality, bespoke gold metal leaf swept frame.
As with all of the original antique oil paintings we sell it is offered in the very finest condition it can be for its age, having been professionally cleaned and re-varnished. Clients should also note that fully insured, tracked and signed for international shipping is complimentary.
Clarence Roe was the son of the popular artist Robert Henry Roe (1822-1905) and his two brothers Colin Graeme Roe and Robert Ernest Roe were also successful late 19th century artists. Clarence Henry Roe was a prolific painter of Scottish Highland loch scenes as well as landscapes of the Lake District.
